Welcome to Schoolhouse Press

Schoolhouse Press is a publisher of knitting books, patterns, and videos, the home of Knitting Camp, and a wool and hand-knitting supply business founded in the mid-1950s by British-born master knitter Elizabeth Zimmermann. Elizabeth’s philosophy of self-confidence and discovery has been carried forward by her daughter Meg Swansen, an internationally known designer, author, and teacher.

Today, Schoolhouse Press remains a family-run company committed to celebrating Elizabeth and Meg’s innovative hand-knitting style. We invite you to explore what we have to offer; we’re here to help you knit on!
